Avonpark has a new village manager. Sylvester Harker took up the role early in September.
Originally from Johannesburg in South Africa, Sylvester moved to the UK in 2003 to work for a hotel and restaurant company where he was heavily involved in event management and most recently in hospitality.
Married with two young children and living just outside Gloucester, Sylvester says his objective is to ensure that all residents at Avonpark enjoy comfortable and fulfilling lives in a warm and hospitable environment.
“I plan to spend most of my time out and about around the village rather than sitting in my office. Engaging with staff and residents is essential to ensure we continue to deliver the highest levels of service,” he added.
